Huff was one of six candidates chosen to interview for the position, but one candidate withdrew before the interview and another took his name out of consideration after his interview.
The board is scheduled to meet at 5 p.m. today and may select its new superintendent.
Originally, the board had intended to bring back one or two candidates for a day-long session in which they would meet the community. That is no longer the plan, according to an article in today's Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette:
With two candidates already withdrawing, (Board President Tim) Hudson thinks it's in the best interest of the district and the candidate to wrap up the selection process rather than present a finalist, bring the person back for a visit with the community and then start negotiating a contract, he said.
The other finalists are Kim Garrett, Fayetteville associate superintendent for secondary education; Jeff Collum, Benton superintendent; and Matt Wendt, superintendent of Community Unit School District 308 in Oswego, Illinois.
